All Dressed Up

Back in August when I celebrated my blog anniversary, I offered to do a blog makeover for a reader who was interested in a new look.  You may recall that I designed my own blog background and header, and I was just itching to do another one.

Martha at Mid-Atlantic Martha was the winner, and I contacted her about what kind of changes she wanted to make.  She told me that her favorite colors were pink and green and that she wanted a vintage look that featured roses, butterflies and crabs.  With that in mind I set out to find elements that I could incorporate into a new look for Martha's blog.

Here's the new header design that features everything Martha wanted, except for her four granddaughters.  We settled for this beach picture, but if she comes up with a picture of the four grand girls we can always change it.

And here's Martha's new background.  You can visit her blog by clicking HERE to see the finished product.  We changed some of the colors for borders, titles and sidebar items to coordinate with her new look.

Let me know what you think.
